Leave it to Christian Louboutin to do what a shoemaker should have done a long time ago.
You know how nude shoes have been popular for, the last 3-4 years? Problem is, a lot of those nude shoes looked "off" on brown skin tones; they simply didn't match up skintone wise with melanin-rich folks.
But what if your skin was a deep, dark chocolate? What then? You pretty much had to wear shoes five shades lighter than your skin tone (not a bad look, all the time, but off putting if you wanted that lean leg look with a shoe that, you know, actually looked like your leg).
Louboutin to the rescue. The French shoe designer debuts "Les Nudes" collection for fall with five shades of nude, starting at $625. From a pale nude to rich chestnut brown, they cover the entire nude color spectrum.
It sparked the question: Can Black girls wear nude shoes?
Sure, nudes that were a beige, pale peach or creamy blush looked OK on, say, a fair-skinned Jennifer Anniston, as fashion experts repeatedly advised women to invest in a pair of nudes to create a nice, lean look and elongated leg.
I don't know about you, but I never thought a true nude was the chalky color that came in a box of Crayola crayons; it's actually a mix of various shades of brown. Many shoes in the line have already sold out..
